To Live Forever

What would it be like to live forever? I have never thought of this until I read the book and watched the movie. Imagine, if I could live forever, I wouldn't grow old and have wrinkles, and I can get hurt all the time without having to worry about the consequences that would happen if I were ordinary. I could eat all I want, and do whatever I want. But there are consequences. Seeing everyone I love die old and frail, and me, young forever. Never being able to live a normal life, with people wondering why I never age. I have always thought that it would be nice to be immortal, you know, just for the hang of it, but I also never thought of the consequences that would come along with it. okay, that's all I can think of right now, my brain just starred to malfunction. haha. :|

I really never thought about living forever. It sounds nice but eventually you would end up alone. All your friends and family would die. There's nothing more painful then losing a loved one. You would gain alot of knowledge but you would also be known as the IMMORTAL person. Society wouldn't accept it. Anything the government doesn't understand they start experimenting and dissecting. So you would become an experimental assignment. Without that it would be cool. You could see all the wonders of the world, but where's the excitment in that when you can't share it with the ones you loved. If my husband and kids could live forever too this would be wonderful.

Isn't this one of the best movies ever? I even read the book after watching the movie. I have to say I loved both. I like the thought of living forever like that, where you don't have to grow old and you also don't have to worry about injuries. Because in other movies where people live forever if they get injured, you're basically messed up forever and that would be horrible. I think it would be nice to live forever. Although if you wanted to have a lot of connections with people and they couldn't live forever that would be bad. But I think if I could just live forever I'd go around and hike all over the world rather than hanging around the same people all the time and doing everyday things. I'd probably not worry as much about the everyday responsibilities because when you think about it, if you never aged then how would you have an average job? You could only work there so long before people asked questions. And then eventually your degree would be worthless because no one would believe you were that age.

I have never thought of the idea of living forever. I think it is a good idea, but I think it is better to live and die rather than living for a long period of time. I think most of us get bored and tired after long period of time living. I think the life would never be the same. I would like to go through the phase sometime just staying young for a long period of time.
